Highlights, Halloween and Everything In-Between

Hellooooo there, friends. Glad to see you back here on this glorious day. First, a positive: It's now the beginning of November, so my Surviving the Holidays post series can resume once again...(please, try to contain your excitement.) More on that extravaganza later...

Now for a negative: Welp, it's Monday...boo and hiss.

But back to the positive!

Yes, I will be doing my infamous Surviving the Holidays post series again this year and, frankly ya'll, I'm stoked. If you're a new reader this year, (which according to my site meter thingy, like 550 of you are), let me tell you what STH is all about. Or "ab-oot", if you're Canadian : )

From now until New Year's Day, I'll do a post once a week on everything holiday-related. We'll cover riveting topics like "How to make a homemade pie crust if you usually buy one from Pillsbury like me" and "How to avoid gaining 30 pounds when indulging in foods like pumpkin pie and candied yams", which I'll probably let the Muscle Maniac handle.

Oh it's exciting, let me tell YOU.

I think since Wednesdays are reserved for Trend Watching (TWW fans, holla!), then I'll pick Tuesday for Surviving the Holidays. That way the other three days of my blogging week with be completely random/most likely fashion-related, to keep you all from going into holiday overload.

Moving on...

I got my hair done Friday. Highlights, per usual. See exhibit A, below.

Last night, the BF and I made delicious chili and hot dogs (YUMMMM!) and watched the Ghost Hunters Live Halloween episode on SyFy. I had not ONE single trick-or-treater, which is kind of the norm at my apartment complex, since the majority of the tenants are 20-something, corporate up-and-comers.

Guess I'll have to eat all that left over trick-or-treat candy by myself : )

I won't feel too bad indulging in a little candy this week, because I've been hightailing it to the gym practically every day lately. Yesterday, I worked out for over an hour with MM in a super-intense cardio sesh and man, am I feeling the burn today! My rear and backs of my thighs are a little sore today, so I guess that means it was a successful workout, huh?

Alrighty, well I'm off to do some real work now. At my real job. Sigh...

Have a terrific, (or at least bearable), Monday!

Be blessed, lovelies-
